ArcGIS Pro 2.7: Which to tool can intersect layers but to keep all non-intersecting features?

 

For example, in the screenshot below, the intersection between L1 and L2 is two features. How to keep the non-intersected features so that the outputs ends up with 9 features but not with 2!

 

I’m aware that I can perform multiple tools to achieve that but wanted to check if there is one single tool that can do the job

How Union works—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

because

Below is an example of Union with features within a feature class that overlap. In this case, the area of overlap will be duplicated to maintain all the attributes and areas.

Select by location... once you get the selection, just switch the location in the table
